Left at Tovarnik Film Premiere

03 Aug 2017

On August 3rd INTO Giving was asked to throw an evening premiere for the documentary short Left at Tovarnik, a film by Jasmine H Wilkes. Shot over three days as Hungary hit the headlines at the height of the refugee crisis in September 2015, the film aims to give a human and personal insight into the experiences faced by families and their struggles for a better future.  After being turned away from the Hungarian camps, the refugees were forced to board coaches back to Croatia where they awaited help, information, and hope for a place to go from Tovarnik station. This intimate and moving film tells the stories of real people during a fragment of their journey.

 

50% of the proceeds from this evening were donated to the Jusoor School for Syrian Refugees in Lebanon. It will help to fund a psychiatric counsellor for the school who will be on hand to help both the students and the teachers. 

 

We raised £515 (after costs) from this event, which was a staggering amount. Thank you to all who attended and to those who gave generously. 

We will be repeating this event in London autumn 2017 so keep an eye out for details if you'd like to come along!
